Why get my Florida Marriage license through the mail?

Our service will save you time and afford you more time to enjoy your vacation in Florida.  It also gives you one less thing to do for your wedding.  If you are coming in on a weekend, then you need to get your license through the mail as the courthouse will be closed.

We both live in different states/countries, can we still get the marriage license by mail?

Yes, we will send you instructions on how to get this done. Since this will extend the amount of time required for processing, we cannot do this for rush service (less than 30 days).

We are non-US citizens, can we still apply?

Yes. You do not need to be a US citizen to apply for the license. The same ID requirements apply. You will need to get the license notarized in your country, please check your country’s requirements and fees prior to purchasing your marriage license with us.  The license will be issued in English only.

Will the license be valid in our country?

Yes, a wedding in the United States is recognized in many countries. However most foreign countries will require an Apostille for legalization. Please check with your local authorities.
